breaking-youtube-blocked-in-pakistanFarooq Ahmed Awan, Chairman PTA, yesterday hinted that YouTube might be opened in Pakistan, in next couple of weeks. He was speaking with a private news channel.


YouTube was banned in Pakistan on September 17th, 2012 when anti-Islam film upload on YouTube had sparked protests across the Muslim world.

Mr. Awan said that Pakistan Telecommunication Authority is in touch with Google, the controlling company of YouTube, for removal of blasphemous videos for viewing in Pakistan. However, no positive response has been received from the company so far.

Government’s eralier requests for removal of blasphemous videos for viewing in Pakistan were turned down by Google.

It maybe recalled that YouTube has blocked the access of blasphemous videos in various countries, including India, Indonesia, Egypt, Tunisia, Singapore and others.

Earlier, Rehman Malik had also stated that YouTube will be unblocked in Pakistan after the removal of blasphemous videos.


        • Sites like Youtube Or Facebook are consuming more then the entire bandwidth of all Muslim countries. That’s why it’s almost impossible to run and manage an alternative

      • Then why don’t we stop using INTERNET? There is much INTERNET content on it that is against our religion!

      • hmmm, u forgot about the draw mohammad day on facebook. then why facebook is getting popularaity in pakistan. i belive instead of blocking youtube govt pakistan should ban facebook, bcz facebook has tons of millions of subscribers in pakistan. aur fb ek bakaar ka shugal hai.

  • Well i feel that Govt. should stand by the principles, they should continue the ban until the movie is blocked in Pakistan … simple as that … we should show some maturity and learn to stand as a nation ….
